Photographer's Note

I was walking along the promenade of Lac Léman this particular afternoon, enjoying a festival that was taking place, when this little girl appeared out of nowhere in front of me. Barefoot and carefree with a balloon in hand, she was a picture of childhood innocence…especially considering that her parents seemed to be nowhere near!?

I grabbed my camera as fast as I could to try and capture the spontaneous moment, knowing that my window of opportunity was extremely small. I was so concerned about making sure I didn’t “cut” her feet out of the frame that I didn’t notice that the balloon was unfortunately cropped out. Oh well, at least it made for a amusing look, virtually replacing the oncoming persons head. :)
